Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion&Giveaway!!!

this post will remain at the top of the page until the contest is over. For more current post scroll down. and while your down there sign up to win! ww is down below along with some other great posts!!! (like giveaways from other people as well)

Skin MD Natural. is a product I had never heard about another blogger wrote about them. And from her review of this product, I knew I had to try it out.(Thanks Gina!!) So after contacting the great people at Skin MD Natural. I was lucky enough to get a free sample. I am so glad that I was able to do this, I love this stuff. I have been using it now for 2 days and my hands feel 1000 times better than they ever have.

What is a Shielding Lotion you ask?
"Shielding lotion is a lotion that forms a protective barrier on the skin and keeps out irritants and chemicals. It also allows the natural oils and moisture to remain in the skin so it can heal better. It is a big advantage that shielding lotions are light and go on without a greasy mess," says Dr. Brian Zogg, a dermatologist in Albert Lea, MN. "When you have dry, itchy skin you know that the protective outer layer of skin has been stripped away. The artificial moisturizers in conventional creams and lotions can send a signal to the moisture producing parts of your skin that enough moisture is present. Your skin then makes less of the natural moisture needed to resolve a dry skin problem. With a shielding lotion you protect your own natural oils and moisture in the skin, so it heals faster," says Dr. Zogg

Even with winter coming to an end I will still be using this lotion everyday on my hands. (You can use it for your face and body as well) I am always washing my hands between diaper changes, helping a 3 year old to the bathroom, and working with the general public. I have had times before where I washed my hands so much they would be cracked and bleeding. And other lotions did nothing for them. My hands were not as bad to where they were cracked and bleeding but I could tell as soon as I put it on it was like no other lotion I had ever tried. What I love most is the fact you don't get the greasy feeling. I can't stand when you put a lotion on and feel as if you need to wipe them off because of a greasy residue. Oh and for the fact when they say "A little goes a long way" they mean it!

Hello, I would love to win it for my niece who had Reynaud's Syndrome. This is a circulation problem and it effects her hands. They get really red, dry and irritated. Please enter me in your drawing. Many thanks,Cindi

Linda said...

Thanks for the giveaway. I need this because my hands are dry and chapped year round. Sometimes, they do get red and raw. I wash my hands so much every day and apply hand lotion several times a day. I have yet to find one that I really like. linda2000[at]gmail[dot]com

This lotion sounds great. I need it because I have 3 cats and I'm in a wheelchair. Between cleaning out the litter box and doing all the other household chores and wheeling my big old behind around my hands are in pretty bad shape.

Thanks for sponsoring this giveaway. I could really use this. I live in the desert southwest and it is SO dry. Yesterday I think our humidity was at 4%! My skin is always anxious for some moisturizing. My feet are especially dry.

Toystory said...

I wash my hands alot too... but I have naturally dry skin and major issues with allergies to things - so this sounds like it might be something that might work. Over the years -- some have worked for a time, but then not over the long haul -- I must have 10-15 brands of hand cream I have real winner yet, maybe this is the one!

After your review, I'm desperate to try this stuff. Ever since my oldest was born three years ago, I have had the worst problem with dry skin on my hands. It started with all the hand washing and dishwashing in hot water, but it's as if something was triggered and it won't go away. Even though I wear gloves to wash dishes now and moisturize like crazy, I still get flare ups that result in painful and sometimes peeling/oozing skin (sorry if that's too much info!). So, I could definitely use this!

I actually need this because my work is extremely rough on my hand. I work int he medical field and have to wash my hands before and after each patient leading them to be dry and sometime crack/bleed. I have been looking around for something that works. I also have eczema on top of it.
